Monitoring & Evaluation of Education for Sustainable Development
[M&E of ESD]
IGES in collaboration with United Nations University Institute of Advanced Studies (UNU-IAS) and in close cooperation with UNESCO Asia and Pacific Regional Bureau for Education initiated a research project on Monitoring & Evaluation of Education for Sustainable Development, starting in July 2011. This project was developed with respect to the nearing end of the UN Decade of ESD (2005-2014) with the overall objectives of establishing regionally-relevant Indicators of ESD to assess the implementation of ESD in the Asia-Pacific region, assessing the impacts of the Decade, and identifying mechanisms for further improvement of ESD into the future.

Research Phase 1 (Jul. 2011 to Mar. 2013) – Scoping Research to identify ESD leverage points:
Research phase 1 was structured to provide multi-country scoping research to 1) identify the important factors and leverage points for both ESD implementation and practice, and 2) develop a M&E of ESD framework from which appropriate indicators could be elaborated. During this scoping phase, research was conducted in two parallel processes across a total of nine countries in East and Southeast Asia for both quantitative evaluation of national ESD implementation and qualitative assessment of ESD learning performance.
Research Phase 2 (Apr. 2013 to Jun. 2014) – Piloting ESD Indicators:
During the second phase of this research project, efforts will be taken on elaborating ESD Indicators and defining a systematic monitoring and evaluation process. The indicators will then be piloted throughout the region and supporting capacity development activities will be conducted to strengthen the quality of reporting achieved during this phase.
